• Rutile - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutile Rutile is a common accessory mineral in high-temperature and high-pressure metamorphic rocks and in igneous rocks.. Thermodynamically, rutile is the most stable polymorph of TiO 2 at all temperatures, exhibiting lower total free energy than metastable phases of anatase or brookite. Consequently, the transformation of the metastable TiO 2 polymorphs to rutile is irreversible.

    www.britannica.com/science/rutile Rutile is an accessory mineral in igneous rocks but is more common in schists and gneisses; it also occurs in pegmatites and crystallized limestones and is common in detrital deposits. Microscopic needles of rutile are widespread in clays, shales, and slates. The top rutile-producing countries include Australia, South Africa, and Ukraine ...

  • Rutile: The titanium mineral in white paint and star ruby

    geology.com/minerals/rutile.shtml Rutile occurs as an accessory mineral in plutonic igneous rocks such as granite and in deep-source igneous rocks such as peridotite and lamproite. In metamorphic rocks, rutile is a common accessory mineral in gneiss, schist and eclogite. Well-formed crystals of rutile are sometimes found in pegmatite and skarn.
  • Rutile: Mineral information, data and localities.

    www.mindat.org/min-3486.html The name rutile was first introduced by the German geologist Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1800 (cfr. Lampadius 1800 and Ludwig 1803). The name is from the Latin rutilus, meaning "reddish."The mineral was already known under other names, such as "red schorl" and some other names, some of them later recognized as synonyms or varieties.

  • Rutile - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    www.sciencedirect.com/topics/physics-and-astronomy/rutile Rutile is the thermodynamically most stable phase among the three natural phases of TiO 2. It has a wide range of applications, due to its unusual properties, such as high optical, high chemical stability, high refractive index, high dielectric constant, and excellent scattering efficiency.
  • Rutile: The titanium mineral rutile information and pictures

    www.minerals.net/mineral/rutile.aspx Rutile is the most common mineral composed of titanium dioxide. Rarer polymorphs include Brookite and Anatase, both which also form unique and distinctive crystals. The name Rutile is derived from the Latin "Rutilus", in reference to a common color habit of this mineral in dark red but lustrous crystals.
